Was in hospital for two days with Bill of $69,000. Glad I was a nurse and knew what was needed for my stay. After stress test was advised by nuclear med tech to drink caffeine (Coca-Cola). The 'Charge Nurse' advised me that I had to call dietary to get Coke since they do not have on floor and did not bother to give me the extension number. Had to call hospital operator to get number---this with a horrible headache. This was just one of several issues encountered during my short stay. Only went to NOMC because ambulance would not take me to another facility.
I just want everyone to know how poorly we are treated by this hospital! Our community would be great, but because of this place it will never be! DON‘T ever move here/go here, because if you do they will kill you either by making sure you can’t afford care, your life in general, or just ruining your life in any way possible. My fiancé’s Appendix surgery? They billed his insurance about $150,000! His insurance denied most of it, but why would you ever attack ANYONE with that high of prices?! More needs to be done! This is unacceptable! And in a community of almost 20,000!? There is obviously little team effort being administered in this medical facility. Don’t laugh like I did when someone told me they were the “highest priced in the nation.” It’s true. Save yourself the headache and go elsewhere, elsewhere where you can breath afterwords instead of suffocate to death. Thanks a lot for nothing North Okaloosa Med Center. You broke my heart and my spirit for this community. I used this want to work FOR you. But, I’m not a low enough person to want to rip people off when they need you the most. Sounds like a drug deal gone wrong to me. I work in a prison now, to me you stack up equally.
Poor experience all around
My mother in law was on a floor with a flesh eating bacteria and my husband was forced to walk home today after being highly medicated. They refuse procedures and to be honest I wouldn't sent MY PET there!
This hospital is by far, the worst hospital I have ever been to. I try not to frequent any hospital and have even been to hospitals in third world countries that are far better than this. Let me say, the triage nurse was good and polite, after that, the service went down tremendously.
First, if you mention the word "pain", they will treat you like a drug addict, period. I just went in for a workmans comp issue with my hand and just needed an x-ray, that's it. When I mentioned the pain after being asked, the looks I got and attitude was shocking. It took the doctor over an hour to come to my room.
Second, the room was dirty and not at all sanitary. The x-ray technician was awesome and nice and so was the billing lady. When the doctor finally arrived, he did what I call "speed talked" and was critical over the fact I couldn't move my thumb the way I wanted. He didn't touch my hand at all or even look at it. After ordering my x-rays, it took them about another hour to achieve that process. In all, I arrived at 3:32pm and left there at 7:15pm. I was not the only problem. There was a little girl who's nose was bleeding a lot, they did not even prioritize her. Their check-in system is terrible. This place seriously needs to be shut down for renovation and some of the staff replaced. Seriously, go to Twin Cities in Niceville if you want proper care. This place is garbage. I would give this place -3 stars if possible. I wouldn't even take a dying person here.
ER front desk lady said it would be hours before being seen. I up and left. I recommend any other hospital if you require a timely visit.
